Trainer Todd Bergen is a well-known competitor in the western horse industry — with major accolades in two disciplines. On March 27, he rode another one of his standout athletes, Smart Luck, to a very impressive title.

The 5-year-old cow horse, by Very Smart Remedy out of Gunna Be Lucky, earned another line on his resume — that of the 2011 National Reined Cow Horse Association Stakes Champion. At the reins was his trainer and NRCHA Million Dollar Rider Todd Bergen.
